Anti-vaccination group to challenge New Brunswick mandatory immunization bill

The president of one of Canada’s largest anti-vaccination organization says he is willing to fight New Brunswick’s proposed mandatory vaccination bill in court.

Ted Kuntz of Vaccine Choice Canada told the committee on the law amendments committee that if Bill 39 were to become law, the group would pursue a challenge to the Supreme Court of Canada if necessary.

“I was asked the question if Vaccine Choice Canada would take this to the Supreme Court and the answer is yes,” Kuntz told reporters after speaking before the committee.

“Families indicated a strong desire to protect our right to informed consent in Canada and if it gets taken away from us, citizens have said that they will take it as far as they need to protect that right.”

When asked what grounds on which a legal challenge would be launched, Kuntz says he would leave that up to the lawyers.
